*TLC Engineering Solutions* used ASHRAE Standard 209 for ?Energy Simulation
Aided Design? on a 1M ft2 Healthcare facility to optimize fa?ade design and
align air flow rates with ASHRAE 170 in this architecture-integrated
Building Energy Modeling (BEM) case study. See how they were able to save
energy, water and cost.

Upcoming Events

*Mar. 24: IBPSA-USA Wisconsin Chapter Event: Passive House Alliance ?

The goal of this presentation is to introduce the audience to the passive
building concept, standards, principles, benefits, and discuss commonly
used design tools in the industry.

*Mar. 25: Re-thinking Daylight Metrics - IBPSA-USA Research Committee*

As daylight availability seeks even distribution of daylight over time for
the whole space, it is still confusing what metrics should be used for
daylight availability or what threshold should be adopted for a specific
daylight metric. This study tests a new hypothesis for daylight metric and
offers a new statistical model to calculate daylight availability which
presents an even distribution of daylight.

Other Events:

*Mar. 24: How High Can You Go?: Simulation Study on High-Temperature
Cooling for Radiant Systems*

In this Building Simulation Users Group presentation, we will go over a
simulation study where we investigated the potential of eliminating the
refrigeration cycle from the primary cooling system design in various US
climates. We created single zone EnergyPlus models that use a high thermal
mass radiant system (HTMR) as the primary cooling system and meet the
climate zones? energy code requirements.
